The gambling scene in Costa Rica is becoming more famous by the minute. Many bachelor parties are being held here, instead of in Vegas. If you are thinking of coming down for a guys weekend or a gambling adventure, you must have heard about Fiesta Casino already.
The Fiesta brand might be the most popular throughout the whole country. That’s because they have four great locations: Alajuela, San Jose, Heredia and Herradura. So, you see, it doesn’t matter if you are in the city, at the beach or in the mountains, there will be a Fiesta Casino near you. It’s one of the best ways to spend time in Costa Rica. Ask just about anyone for directions. If they have been here more than a day, they know where there’s a Fiesta.
The one in Alajuela is closest to the airport, so many people make good use of this one while waiting for a flight or spending a first or last night near the airport. They opened in 2005 and have accrued an affluent clientele over the years. It’s upscale. They feature 200 machines and 84 table positions. In addition to the games, they are known for fun at the PIRATES Bar & Grill, in the middle of the casino. They are always cooking up something tasty. This bar is designed like the set of a really cool movie. Bring your camera.
The CASH CLUB is a promotion they offer which allows you to gain points on a card and trade them in for food and beverages. There are weekly point prizes that are determined by your playing level. The more you play, the more free food you are entitled too. Not a bad deal!
If it’s your first time at the casino, don’t worry, there are deals for you too. From 4-8 daily there are 2×1 Happy Hour specials. While you enjoy your drinks, you can also catch the latest music videos or the best sports games on giant LCD screens. They strive to bring their clients the best of the best, in atmosphere and customer service.
Although the Alajuela location is now the most popular, the first location was in San Jose, in 2001. Their slogan is “Where the party never stops.” They got a lot of attention when they opened up a Vegas style casino with 50 machines and Electronic Roulette. You can find this location next to Hotel Presidente, and it’s almost always open (from 11am to 5am).
Many tourists stay in Heredia, to avoid the busy vibe of San Jose. If you are one of them, check out El Fiesta Casino in Heredia. They have a nice ambiance and a lower key crowd. Good memories are guaranteed.
Lastly, there’s the beach location, Herradura, near Jaco. In this happening town, you might forget you are in Costa Rica. That’s because this beach town is open all night, as is the casino. Play hard and party on!
